2:16 am
several sources out at the scene are keeping an eye out, wondering if anyone else is involved. but at least initially they wonder if the one person they have in custody would be the mastermind behind the event here. we're hoping to get more information here just within the next few minutes, but we're being told that these numbers, the ten dead and the 39 injured,
2:17 am
whenever we ask for clarification on this, we're told at least ten people are dead, at least 39 people are in injured. and so at this point, we don't know if that number is going to go higher. this is at the town center at aurora movie theater here, and you mentioned that aurora is very close to denver. it virtually touches denver in techs of its one metro area here, and so i'm looking at a live picture here, and we're just seeing so many police officers responding to the scene. we're waiting to see if those numbers do go higher. >> jas, are we hearing anything from eyewitnesss in terms of what this person's demeanor was when he or she walked into the theater, what this person was wearing? was anything said? >> we want to be completely up front with our viewers. the people who talked to us were in the theater. but several themes seem to carry
2:18 am
through every person discussing what happened, that a man was dressed in some type of gear. whether or not this person had a bulletproof vest or hat goggles on, we're hearing things of that nature, but we're also believing that this occurred at least initially in theater number 9 and at some point someone came in and threw some kind of incendiary or explosive device and got people's attention. at first some people were telling us they thought maybe this was some type of, you know, fun joke at the movie theater because of the movie they were seeing, and then they realized that it got much worse. several shots were fired, at least according to the witnesses we're talking to. some are telling us they believe it was a shotgun. other people are telling us that they think that the rounds were fired so quickly that they question whether or not it would be a shotgun. >> and we understand the injured and even the dead are being taken to several area hospitals. i know the swedish person is one
2:19 am
of those. their spokesperson, nicole richards says two have arrived at her hospital in critical condition and according to the spokesperson, the hospital has been told there could be several more people brought to that hospital. where else might these people be taken? >> they're also being taken to denver medical health center, which is one of our trauma one hospitals. for those not familiar, it's a hospital that has staff 24 hours a day ready to immediately respond, and so we know that there are at least a handful of paem that were also taken to denver health medical center. we don't know exactly where else people are taken. we know that there are some hospitals that were closer to the scene, but, of course, you would want to take someone to a trauma one, certainly if they were in this situation. >> yeah. and let's just remind people, this happened shortly after midnight. this would have been a midnight showing of "the dark knight rises," a movie that premiered last night. so those theaters, the multiple
2:20 am
theaters that that movie was showing in probably would have been packed. yo saw i this is a multi-theater facility, so those people would have packed that theater just after midnight to see this film, and we have reports that the calls started coming in at about 12:30 a.m., so just about 30 minutes into this event is when this person walked into this theater and began shooting. you mentioned, jas, that there was some kind of incendiary device. do you have any reports that that might have been responsible for some of the deaths of some of the people or does that appear that that was just more of a did traction? >> reporter: matt, we just don't know at this point. >> jas, stand by for me. we've got some sound we're going to play for our audience. this person is a witness who was in a nearby theater. let's listen. >> it sounded like madness to me. she said that a man about six feet tall, taller than her, kicked through the door and he was in she said a riot helmet.
2:21 am
she said he was -- had a bulletproof vest on. you know, she said that he was completely covered in all black with goggles. and she said that after that point when she saw that he was holding a shotgun, her and her boyfriend dropped to the floor and just tried to start to crawl to get away. when she turned around, all she saw was the guy slowly making his way up the stairs and just firing. >> that was an eyewitness or someone who spoke to an eyewitness in one of the theaters where this gunman walked in and opened fire shortly after midnight. i've about got jas larson on our phone from our station ksra. jas, you start to think about the number of injuries and deaths we're talking about. as we sbeek, ten dead and 39 injured and it sounds like this person who is now under arrest
2:22 am
probably had more than one weapon or reloaded that weapon once or several times during the course of this shooting. >> reporter: if you talk to witnesses, they are saying that they believe that there were multiple shots fired. when we ask how many, they're not telling us that it's five or six. they're telling us that it's many more than that. but, again, we know from previous experiences unfortunately that sometimes, you know, you need to kind of wait to get those numbers. it is tough at this point to not think of columbine here because that is what occurred so close to this area here, in the same metro area. and certainly when you talk to people on the phone and they're calling in the newsroom or you're calling them, that seems to be what people are bringing up. and that is a very tough thing. people around here -- that was a very traumatic experience for so many people. matt, i want to tell you one other thing that we're hearing from people. it is that many people were dressed up to go into this movie theater to see this movie, and any of us who have been to a
2:23 am
midnight showing understand that that happens -- think of harry potter. everyone dressed up for that. many people dressed up here. it may have been, according to what the witnesses are telling us, tough to pick somebody out who looked suspicious because, again, this was such an event where people were purposely dressing up, that somebody dressed all in black might not look any different. >> the latest numbers we're getting now -- jas, we thank you for your information. 14 have been killed. we're told by police 36 have been injured. many of those have been taken and are being taken to local hospitals, so we're going to be getting updates on their condition throughout the day. jas larson, thank much more information coming up this morning on the "today" you like to read. >> it does make sense but you have to put the effort and time into it. >> you have to realize you have to make the time and effort. >> i think you attract what's within you. >> of course. >> we feel like it should happen automatically.
2:24 am
we felt it was easy in school. but consistency is what happened automatically. >> we used to talk to one another. now everybody is involved in technology. we are missing opportunities. >> all right. thank you. >> i have my hodi. >> yes, you do, girl. man's best friend has a cool encounter in sara's webtastic video. es it? listen. 5-hour energy lasts a whole lot of hours. so you can get a lot done without refills. it's packed with b-vitamins and nutrients to make it last. so don't just stand there holding your lattes, boys. make your move. we'll take the 5-hour energy. smart move. 5-hour energy. hours and hours of energy. but kate still looks like...kate.
